Our expert says:
Obviously you are overweight, but being a young female non-smoker, with normal blood pressure and no diabetes, your risk of getting coronary heart disease is very low. Also, the pain you describe does not sound at all like heart pain.( It sounds like what we call a chest wall syndrome, that is, the pain is from something in the chest wall - muscles between ribs, etc - not the heart!) In addition stress ECG's are very unreliable, especially in people like yourself who are at low risk.. We can be very confident, just from what you tell me, that your pain is not from the heart.
For all these reasons a stress ECG is not necessary, and will not be particularly helpful for you.
My advice would be to continue with the healthy eating, exercise and weight loss program you have started. As you lose more and more weight you will feel better and better. All credit to you, it is not easy but worth it in the long run
